Grouse Mountain winter wedding: Allie + Bob

I haven’t even finished sharing all the weddings from September, but Allie and Bob’s Grouse Mountain winter wedding seemed a perfect post for the day after Christmas! Vancouver was a travel destination for them and their families. And the mountain didn’t disappoint! We were all rooting for snow and it happened just in time. 😉

From the start when talking with the two of them, it was clear that their main focus was on making sure it was an experience and a great time for the family. They chose the best location for that, because weddings at Grouse Mountain come with the fun skyride up and plenty to see at the top! Not to mention the beautiful view of the city.

Before the ceremony on the deck, Allie and Bob had a first look and we walked around for a couple of portraits in the snow. They toughed it out in sneakers and dressed shoes, haha, impressed! These two have a great sense of humour, which we later found out during the speeches runs in their families. Just two days prior, they told their family they’re expecting twins (no joke!). And they did so while taking a selfie so they could capture everyone’s reaction to the news! That’s just the best.

It was soon time to return to the deck, where everyone witnessed the ceremony huddled in warm blankets. During the ceremony, Bob surprised Allie with a different ring than the one she expected! This shows he knows his bride well, haha, she thought it was hilarious. 😉 The whole ceremony was like something out of a movie: gorgeous sunset, incredibly beautiful vows and a good dash of humor.

And as I mentioned before, the speeches were extremely funny. It always makes me a bit teary-eyed when families can have a good laugh together. In my opinion this shows closeness and a strong bond. We left the group, when dinner started. I can only imagine how hilarious their night ended with a karaoke adventure downtown!

Allie and Bob, thanks so much for having us and sharing these moments with you and your family.
